Double Feature #2
My latest Double Feature is up now on Lost in the Multiplex. This time round the theme is Men Behaving Badly and I take in the legendary Swingers and recent smash hit The Hangover.
Welcome to another double feature and after last week’s metal fest it’s a slight change of pace this time out. This week we focus on some prime examples of men who are old enough to know better getting up to no good.
Both of this week’s picks are stories of male bonding mixed with male idiocy. There are elements of what is now commonly referred to as the ‘bromance’ in there but essentially what both films are about is groups of men coming together, drinking perhaps a little more than they should and hitting the town. One movie sees a group of lounge lizards rallying around their drinking buddy when he finds himself coming out of a painful break-up. Naturally this involves going out on the town, a trip to Vegas and plenty of awkward conversations with the beautiful babies. The second is a more raucous affair as four friends attempt to have one last wild night out before one of their number gets married, and things inevitably get a little bit out of hand.
